    Yeah I noticed that too. Seems like a waste if Whitts was promised some game time.

    He sits where he wants now.

    I've heard from someone very close to Whitts that this is true but I really hope it isn't true even though I'm claiming to have heard it from a top source I'm saying I hope it isn't true to give me an out in the event that it isn't true. If it does turn out to be true I would look like a right ITK though. I just hope it isn't true.

    He started in the league on the weekend. I'm sure he was just rested. He's the best player in the bloody league!

    Sat next to some people from Blackburn tonight whilst on holiday. They were rugby fans and not at all interested in football so my mention Whitts fell on very uninterested ears.

    Reading a few comments on brfcs. It appears Rovers went 3 in midfield and pushed Whitts into an attacking midfield role. The substitution would appear to have been to change formation and go with a front two.

    While it's worth bearing in mind that they lost and are currently in the bottom 2 (early days and all that), a few have commented that they think Whitts is Danny Murphy mk II, presumably not in the type of footballer, but because Murphy went to Rovers as a bit of a marquee signing but ended up having his contract terminated.

    A few have said that Whitts needs legs in midfield to support him, one said they need him for corners and free kicks (!) but the general view appears to have been that he was rather anonymous today. One reviewer was much more scathing, writing this: "Whittingham - 1 - Lost the ball every time he got it in a tight area then just shrugged and gave up. When he got it with time to pass there was no-one to pass to. Literally a waste of time him turning up, but not entirely his fault. Subbed."

    Let's hope Whitts can turn things around and show he still can be a class performer. It appears that Rovers are in a bit of a state at the moment, certainly not the easiest situation for Whitts to be at his best.

    Fantastic judgement by Neil Warnock.

    I agree. Quite clear that he is way past his best and wouldn't get a sniff in our current side.

    It's sad to see, but all good things come to an end. I see some posters are even ditching their Whitts avatars. The king is dead, long live the king!

    Some were questioning the signings of Mendez-Laing and Damour, asking why we couldn't keep hold of Whitts. Early doors, I accept, but seems like Warnock was right.

    Sadly yes .
    Seems a timely move for us .

    Footy is not for the faint hearted.
    Warnock is no fool.
    Blackburn are going down .
    Whitts to retire at the end of the year .
    City to go up.
    Testimonial to follow, only 5k turn up,

    Thanks for this. Came into this thread looking for this kind of feedback. Really hope he does better going forward.

    I might've suggested that the OP wasn't quite up to the standard set by your good self.

    Let's just say it didn't go down too well.

    Dropped to the bench today as Rovers won 1-0.

    Shame, with the industry in this Cardiff team he would have ripped it up this season. He would have run the shoe.

    Re: Whitts watch

    Whitts had a slight niggle today so couldn't start. However he come on as sub with 15 mins to go to steady the ship and help Rovers see the game out.

    Where do you get that from? Rovers official site says he was dropped.

    That was my understanding as well. Would be interested to know about the niggle.

    Let's just say my source wasn't the same muppet who told you Stoke were making a bid for Zohore last week

    Never understood why managers drop a player due to a niggle then use them from the bench, unless he's being a bit economical with the truth.

    Whitts definately on bench for Blackburn and came on in 79th minute for Craig Conway.

    You're kidding, right?

    He would've been a liability, not that he would even get into this team.

    Can't get into a struggling Blackburn side but would've "run the shoe"!

    Why are there still so many fans who can't come to terms that Whitts just isn't very good anymore?

    Thanks for that but we established that he was on the bench about 10 posts ago

    A slight niggle is not injured. If he was injured then he wouldn't have made the squad today.
